Desroches Island Resort

A privately-owned five-star resort on a tiny island in the Indian Ocean offers the epitome of barefoot luxury.

Located in the Amirante Archipelago, it is considered one of the Seychelles’ most pristine and untouched islands, and yet when you visit you do not leave behind all the sophisticated comforts today’s traveller needs.

 Accommodation is in a mixture of beach suites and retreats, ranging from one to five bedrooms, some hidden by lush vegetation but all spacious and cool. Combine this with delicious food, fine wines, a host of activities and a pampering spa and paradise has been found.

Our Thoughts

Some of the private outer islands of the Seychelles can be ruinously expensive, but Desroches gets it about right. Reached by a short daily flight from Mahe, the range of accommodation will sort all pockets, from suites and retreats to private villas. The simple pleasure of just cycling around the island should be compulsory for all new arrivals.
